The Last Case [Reprint — (1978) 16:1 Alta. L. Rev. 1]


  • W.G. Morrow



This is an exact reprint of an article published in 1978 in Volume 16 of the Alberta Law Review. It is the story of the last appeal to go from Canada to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, as told by the late Justice Morrow of the Supreme Court of Alberta Appellate Division. This article not only describes the background to a historically significant case that went through the Appellate Division, but also provides the unique perspective of one of its former members. As noted in the original abstract, “[t]he material contained in the reported decisions is interesting but it is hoped the reader will find that the story back of the reports is even more interesting.”
